Has anybody fish this lake during the winter? I have taken some nice crappies in the spring near the landing. Caught some nice size Northerns also and caught a 6' ugly stick with real.

Bavaria isn't real well known for being an ice fishing lake. I have also taken decent crappies and sunfish from the lake. It's just not a very good ice fishing lake for me at least.

We fishd Bavaria this summer and NOTHING but tiny sunfish. Sounds like we should give the bay near the landing a try in the spring though...

Havent seen anybody really out there but when i drove by there today i saw there was a permanent right on the west end of the lake. I am not sure how longs he's been out there but i dont think its been out there more than a week. The owner was just driving off as i pulled into the access but i didnt have a chance to chat with him. I was on my way home from another lake but i just couldnt resist the chance to hop down there and fish it so i grabbed the locator the hand auger and a rod and walked out in front of the access. Drilled in 19 fow and dropped the jig down. It only took a few seconds to spot a few fish come off the bottom and take a wiff. After missing a couple i pulled it up and it was just a dinky sunfish. So i just moved out deeper and didnt have any luck in 30 fow. Then went into 9 fow on the weed edge and gave it a few minutes with no luck so i just packed up becuase i had to get home. I was only there about 20 min and maybe if i would have stuck around i would have caught something decent.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.

      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.

      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
